"I say you didn’t get beat, you gave ‘em one," Henderson said after the Bills’ practice Friday in Ralph Wilson Stadium. "Take that mentality. You gave ‘em one. Somewhere in your technique, you didn’t do something right. But if that guy runs the same play the next time, I guarantee you’ll make that play."
